This is one of my favorite dip recipes!  It's light, it's refreshing, and our Cherchies® lemon dill spice makes this dip irresistibly good.  Cherchies® Lem 'n Dill Seasoning is our original and still most popular seasoning (Did I mention it comes in two sizes?).  Obviously it is fabulous in a dip, but It's also great on chicken, fish, eggs, and vegetables. 

Combining equal parts of mayonnaise and sour cream enhances the flavors of the spices in this dip, and I would definitely NOT leave out the mayonnaise.  (Actually, you could substitute the sour cream with greek yogurt and use light mayo for a lighter version).  I would recommend making this dip a day ahead, as the flavors tend to intensify over time!  We also have a no-salt lemon dill seasoning!  Try our other seasoning blends in lieu of the Lem 'n Dill for an array of tasty dips.

Ingredients

Preparation

Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl.  Chill dip for at least two hours (can be made a day ahead).  

For a fun twist on veggies and dip, try arranging the veggies in shot glasses with the dip at the bottom. Vloia...instant cute individual appetizers!  I made these cuties for my parent's recent surprise 50th Anniversary party. They were a huge hit! 

Maybe your kids would even eat their veggies presented this way;)  (Mine did!) 

For a Halloween flair, cut up orange peppers to look like Jack o Lanterns, cutting a wide mouth to allow the dip to ooze out.  Spooky!  Enjoy!

Cilantro Lime Corn on the Cob Recipe

Corn on the cob, a quintessential must for summer!  For this recipe, we've spiced things up and decided to try our Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro Seasoning on corn.  Oh my goodness!  As if corn on the cob, slathered with butter, could get any better!  It will definitely be a party in your mouth.  

Ingredients

Preparation

Fill a large pot with water.  Turn stove on high.  Place pot on the stove and when water comes to a boil, place corn in the water.  Cook the corn for about three minutes, or until corn is done to your likeness. 

While corn is cooking, melt butter and  Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro Seasoning in a microwave.  Try our other seasoning blends to "spice things up".

Drain corn and pour butter mixture over corn.  Enjoy!

Lem'n Pepper Chicken Recipe

Lem'n Pepper Chicken Recipe

Summer, means grilling!  My family and I grill year round, and during the winter, my brave hubby battles the elements and grills in his winter coat and snow boots.  I'm not that brave.  I'm quite the wimp when it comes to cold and I opt for grilling inside with my grill attachment.

This recipe is very easy, and with only a few ingredients, is the perfect meal for those impromptu get-togethers. You could easily use this recipe on chicken breasts, wings, etc., but legs were the choice this time, and I chose to use Cherchies® Lem 'n Pepper Spicy Blend

Try our other spices too!  (I usually make a batch of chicken legs with an assortment of our seasoning blends and have our guests choose their favorites).  This would be a lot of fun for a game night meal.

Ingredients

**(Could substitute Cherchies®Select Grilling Rub & Seasoning, Cherchies®Chardonnay Lime & Cilantro Seasoning, Cherchies®Garlic Seasoning, Cherchies®Pepper Pizzazz Seasoning, Cherchies® Salsa Seasoning, or Cherchies®Pepper 'n Lime Seasoning for a completely different taste...or mix them up!)

Preparation

Light grill and turn on high.  After five minutes, turn grill down to low.

Brush Olive oil on Chicken legs.  Generously coat all sides of chicken with Cherchies® Lem 'n Pepper Spicy Blend (or any of our seasoning blends).

Place chicken legs on the grill and cook, turning every five minutes until juices run clear.  The result, lovely, juicy grilled chicken legs.  Enjoy!

Lem 'n Dill Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Lem 'n Dill Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Mashed potatoes in my opinion, are the quintessential comfort food. This recipe adds a new "twist" to regular mashed potatoes.  In this recipe, we used Cherchies Lem 'n Dill Seasoning to add a nice zing to the potatoes. Another option would be to experiment with some of our other spices.  Garlic Potatoes, made with our Cherchies Garlic Seasoning or Garlic 'n Herbs No-Salt Seasoning would be a refreshing substitution.  For those who like to "spice things up", our Select Grilling Rub and Seasoning would make the perfect compliment to a Tex-Mex dish.

Ingredients

  • 8-10 Gold potatoes, peeled and cut in half
  • 10 cups of water, or enough to cover potatoes
  • 1-2 teaspoons (tsp) salt
  • 3 Tablespoons (Tbsp.) Butter
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp), or more to taste Cherchies Lem 'n Dill Seasoning
  • 1/3 cup 1/2 and 1/2 (add more or less for desired consistency)

Preparation

In a large pot, boil potatoes in water with 1-2 teaspoons of salt, until potatoes are fork tender (this means they seem tender when you put a fork into them).  Drain potatoes, and while potatoes are still hot, add butter and Lem 'n Dill seasoning (or if you were really organized, you could dip into your premade Cherchies Herbed Butter Recipe).  This can either be done right in the pan or in a large bowl.

Add 1/2 and 1/2 (more or less depending on taste...everyone has his or her own consistency preference), and cream cheese.  Mix with a mixer until potatoes are light and fluffy.

My mouth is watering...Grab a spoon.  Enjoy!
